Hello! It's Friday, time for — WAIT A SECOND. It's Monday. Well, let's do a catch-up version of Tell Us Dammit. Let's.


Here's how it works: We ask a question, you answer it. Simple and no strings attached! This isn't some marketing survey or whatever. It's an emotional investment in you. Yes, we're interested in knowing you, Kotaku reader person.

You probably know oodles about us - more than you even want to, we're sure. But, hey, we'd like to know about you. That way you won't be some faceless blob - and we might feel a tinge of guilt when we ban ya. Or not, because really we're incapable of human emotion.


Late last week, it was revealed that Gearbox Software is working on Duke Nukem Forever, a game that has been in development at 3DRealms for...forever. Our question:

Question: Do you think Duke Nukem Forever will actually be released?

It's happening. It's finally in capable hands and the product will be released.

I would ask, 'Yes, but will it be good' - the FPS market is a hard place to be these days, even decent titles tank - you have to be more than decent. And with the hype behind Duke Nukem - will it be special enough? We've seen what happens to subpar sequels in its peers franchises such as the latest Wolfenstein or Quake. Decent games, but forgettable, not even a sure buy. Although, I guess buying DNF is sort of a given for a lot of us, regardless.

I have faith in Gearbox. They've proved themselves an able studio many times, and I think this is an exciting turn of events.

My question? But will there be boobs.

I mean, honestly, that's half the reason I was obsessed with Duke Nukem 3D when I was a youngster - sneaking over to my friend's house to play it late at night and give dollar after dollar to the boobie-tassle strippers.

Should be interested to see how far Gearbox takes it.
